5 tips on how to decorate your Chirstmas TreeThe Christmas trees have arrived at Trowbridge Garden Centre. As such, you’re welcome to visit us and pick the perfect tree that will certainly bring the Christmas spirit right into your home! Additionally, we have a wide range of the most beautiful tree decoration. It is therefore that we feel the need to share some Christmas tree decoration tips!


1. Stable position

Start with making sure your tree is in a stable position and that any cables can be covered. The latter can be realised with a Christmas tree skirt of matching fabric, for example. Don’t have much space? Consider putting your tree on a small table, this will save room and gives body to the tree!  

2. And then there was light

Work your way down: start placing the first lights from the top of the tree and work your way down. Doing so will make sure that wires don’t get stuck. Place some lights deeper into the tree to create depth and a pretty effect!

3. Don’t overdo it

We recommend not to use too many different coloured decorations on your tree. After all, you want the tree to compliment your interior, not to suck up all the attention. A base of gold (warm) or silver (cold) in combination with 1 or 2 other colours should do!

4. Keep it balanced

As with the lights, start decorating your tree from the top and work your way down. This way, you won’t be able to knock off other decorations. Use the smaller pieces at the top and the largest pieces at the bottom to make sure the tree is balanced.

5. Use the depth of the tree

Use the depth of the tree by placing some decoration pieces deeper into the tree. Shiny decorations are ideal for this! Doing this in combination with non-shiny pieces on the outer areas of the tree gives a great effect!
